Producer in the Spotlight: Ocean Spray

If you’ve tasted our Ruby Dried Cranberries, you’ll know that these delicious tart morsels make the best snacks, salad toppings, and yogurt mix-ins. Our Ruby Dried Cranberries are brought to you all the way from Ocean Spray, a company with an 85-year long history of growing quality fruit across the USA.

Ocean Spray was formed in 1930 by three cranberry growers with a simple love of cranberries. Led by lawyer and grower Marcus L. Urann, the three began coming up with new and innovative products made from cranberries. Since then, the Ocean Spray cooperative has grown to more than 700 grower families all across North America, many of whom operate farms that have been in their families for generations. Thanks to their expertise and dedication, Ocean Spray has grown into the trusted brand they are today.

The cooperative’s first product was jellied cranberry sauce, followed by original Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice Cocktail hitting the shelves in the early 1930s, beginning a long tradition of quality, innovation, and success. The rest, as they say, is history.

As a Grower-Owned Cooperative Ocean Spray prides themselves on the high quality and most importantly the safety, of their products. For more than 85 years, Ocean Spray farmers have been growing cranberries and grapefruit that are GMO free.

At Ocean Spray, caring for the land runs deep. Ocean Spray is committed to managing their business in a way that minimizes their environmental impact, from conserving water, to reducing energy use, and cutting unnecessary waste and product packaging.
